are learning defense secretary leon panetta said the military did not have armed aircraft near libya that could have helped. jennifer griferin joins us live from the pentagon. >> reporter: in just a few minutes the pentagon is finally going to brief reporters with its time line of what happened the night of the benghazi attack from the military's perspective. we have been asking for this time line for eight weeks. we'll be briefed off camera by a senior u.s. defense official. here is what we have been able to piece together on our own. the national command authority began moving assets shortly after 3:47 p.m. eastern when the first calm from the embassy to the state department was made. but none of those military assets were given permission to enter libyan air space. panetta said none of those military assets would have been in a position to help. they would not have been there in time. general carter ham was visiting washington and in the pentagon on 9/11 and went to the ops center and did all that was within his power to authorize. ham ordered a rescue unit to deploy from croatia on a modifi
but significant of $15 billion in cuts to the defense department which even panetta said would be a calamity and you have --. >>neil: how much of a calamity the congressional budget office says you just let the rates go for the upper income and you keep, avoid most of the cuts, those of medicare and all, you can letsen the blow and it would not be damaging. they are picking and choosing, and the hit could be severe because this isn't like you can pick elements from a solid, it is all or nothing. >>guest: the question is, will they come to terms of a deal? >>guest: speaker boehner struck a conciliatory note but what he meant is what mitt romney was talking about lowering tax rates and eliminating tax loopholes what erskine bowles supported in the "washington post" yesterday, a democrat. and you have senator schumer who noted the conciliatory tone of speaker boehner and he said it was a nonstarter because he will raise taxes on those that make over $250,000. >>neil: say he intends to do that and i am trying to save the nation beside read a prompter but i was trying to find a middle ground. if
a timeline of the military's response to the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. leon panetta learned about it 15 minutes after it began. the first special prayings team arrived 14 hours after it was over. by then, chris stevens and three other americans were dead. the military's blaming long traveling distances for the delay. the judge sentencing an ohio teenager for his role with phony crases list offers to job seekers. the jury rejected the claim that he feared for his life if he didn't cooperate with the triggerman, shooting 3 people. now back to record roar. >> cia director, petraeus abruptly resigned, for personal reasons, cheating on his wife. but the timing is raising eyebrows. in days he is supposed to go to capitol hill to testify on benghazi. joining me is bob cusack and steve hayez and byron york. byron... go aheadanism the fbi investigating the cia director in the heat of a presidential campaign and the white house apparently doesn't know about it. and the-- the opposition party in congress is hot on the heels of the cia about this debauch nel libiasm i mean, it's an insa
or leon panetta or even barack obama. these are tectonic plates that are moving in the middle east. and the idea that who the president decides to appoint as secretary of state is going to make a material difference in these things, no. >> does anyone have, do you think, does anyone have any real sense of where egypt might go in all of this? >> i think egypt, look, it's quarter to a third of the arab world. cairo is one of the historical centers of the arab world. we don't have a good reading on where these guys are going, the muslim brotherhood. i'm not sure they necessarily do. we don't know how much to take literally what they say and write. they've got their internal politics, the party, the government. there's issues between them and other forces in egypt. they came into government fairly narrowly. but they're clearly trying to deepen their base. so everyone's watching really closely what they're doing with the rewriting of egypt's constitution, how these people want to consolidate power. what they say in the middle east, it's one thing to win an election. that's the easy part
, issues about sequestration. defense secretary leon panetta has been very vocal about the fears of the impact on the pentagon. he has been very involved in the negotiations. we talked to a professor from to us son state university. she said when people are invested in the negotiations they don't like to walk away. that is probably true of secretary panetta. here is what she told us. >> defense secretary leon panetta, he has fought hard against sequestration because he didn't want to see the type of cuts that sequestration called for the defense department. and he is going to see that through. >> keep in mind he has got probably the toughest commute of any cabinet secretary right now going from coast to coast to do his job. folks says he seems very committed to staying there until they figure out exactly how these cuts will affect the pentagon. jenna. jenna: it is a long commute for sure. thank you. >> reporter: you got it. >> there was a mandate in yesterday's results it is a mandate for us to find a way to work together on the solutions to the challenges that we all face as a n
of the consulate. the other problem is 50 minutes before secretary of defense panetta is brief and dempsey joint chiefs of life. the scheduled meeting with the president. you wait an hour when the u.s. sovereign territory is attacked and run. the sy had moved people over to the annex and then panetta said go ahead and start to move people and wait five hours for him to recertify the order. >> brian: you know, gary, you have to understand civilians it started and stopped and not one continuous attack? >> brits who were on the ground said it a continuous attack and witnesses say continuous fire arm in the entire process. but once your people are under attack from small weapons and assault and rpg's. you move people. they didn't move. they were slow to act. the department of defense. big, and slow and burrcratic and it is heart breaking. the men who moved quickly as they could. they had a slight delay and tried to get the libyans to help them. but they had to go on their own. to wait five hours for the recertifiation . the special operators on the ground expected help to come and holding out and fi
and the president as well as secretary -- i'm sorry secretary panetta and president obama were notified on the morning of november 1st. evidently this took place at about 4:50 eastern time that morning, martin. >> and, mike, i understand there's some information about the president traveling overseas in the near future. is that right? >> reporter: right. this was a trip that the president had talked about actually an asean meeting. he will be in myanmar, burma, of course, and thailand and cambodia. he'll be making this trip over the course of the third week in november just before thanksgiving. this is a trip that the president had promised to make before the last time he was in the region you recall he goes there virtually every year in the fall for the apec conferences which is an economic conference involving the nations of the pacific rim, martin. >> nbc's mike viqueira. thanks so much for the updates. >> reporter: okay. >> we'll be right back to "clear the air." streaming quotes, any way you want. fully customize it for your trading process -- from thought to trade, on every screen
secretary leon panetta and steven chu and also ken salazar. even attorney general eric holder and transportation second ray lahood, the only republican left in the cabinet, could be leaving as well. in 2008 obama told "time" magazine he wants his cabinet to be a team of rivals saying, quote, i don't want people who just agree with me. i want people continually pushing me out of my comfort zone. what should we expect this time around? i would bring it to the table. so i think the biggest one people are talking about is who is going to replace hillary clinton. the two names who have voted is u.n. ambassador susan rice and john kerry. i have no problem with susan rice. i think she's fantastic and unfortunate how she's been treated recently. i tell you, john kerry during this campaign has been fantastic in his debate prep with the president. i thought his speech as the dp nc was brilliant, and i think he would be a terrific diplomat. there's concerns that if he was nominated then the senate -- his senate seat would be open and scott brown could have another shot at getting into th
panetta, who was the secretary of defense. but the personal and human drama here the tragedy, really of a public service, a life in public service and a life of valor, which has you can see from his own admission has been cut short by his personal transgression that he acknowledges is pretty emotional and dramatic stuff. i think that there will be people questioning the benghazi situation, but i think that this has been put out in excruciating detail if you will to try to say this was not about benghazi. he has been called to testify next week in a closed hearing of the senate intelligence committee, and his testimony would still be very important on benghazi. of course his deputy would also be able to carry that on. >> sure. andrea, thank you very much for bringing us the breaking news. i know that you were the first on this within your hour indicating there would be a change of status and now we know. jay carney was asked about this during the daily briefing. he said he would not at the time comment on personnel issues but i have with me colonel jack jacobs. you're

do know this, that we're likely to call leon panetta and general ham and others in the armed services committee and i believe the foreign relations committee would want to hear from secretary clinton and all those who were responsible for consulate security. the problem is, that the three committees will not be able to hear what the other groups are saying. >> joining me live is democratic senator bob casey of pennsylvania, member of the senate foreign relations committee, also chairman of the congress's joint economic committee. sir, good it to have you here. we say congratulations about your re-election but we have to dig down deep on this big story because right now, we have senator graham, we have senator mccain, calling for a select committee. they feel like they are not getting the answers they need and won't get the answers they need otherwise. what is your reaction to that? >> well, there's no question whatever format it takes we need to get answers to a lot of questions. some of that process has begun. we had a briefing yesterday in the foreign relations committee which i tho
